Fine Turkish pizza filled with spinach, feta and sesame seeds

Pide with spinach and feta I could eat every day. Crispy on the outside and filled with fine spinach and vegan feta cheese on the inside. Especially the pizza dough with the crispy crust is always the absolute highlight for me personally. If then spinach and vegan Greek cheese is included, then there is no stopping me. I remember so well the last time I was in Istanbul and ate a vegan version. Finally there is also a variant on my blog.

The pide basically consists of two components, the dough and the filling. The dough is a simple pizza dough, for which there are already some variants on this blog. I chose to use fresh yeast, but it works just as well with dry yeast.

The filling is a mixture of spinach, red onion, garlic, salt, pepper and nutmeg. This is all mixed together and topped with feta. Then it’s off to the oven to bake for 20 minutes. I tried a new vegan feta this time and was surprised at how authentic the feta flavor was. Shortly before the end of the baking time, I add sesame seeds and let them roast for a few minutes.

I have fond memories of my trips to Turkey and especially the hospitality. The first time I traveled to Turkey, I was 19 years old and only had a backpack with me. Together with two friends we drove once across the country, far away from tourist areas. I remember how nice the people were and they always invited us to eat.

If you’re not in the mood for pide today, but want another pizza variation, I recommend the following recipes:

4 Servings


  • 170 ml lukewarm water
  • 2 g fresh yeast or 1/10 of a package of fresh yeast, I use a gram scale, alternatively ½ package of dry yeast.
  • 1 tbspn Olive oil
  • 1 tbspn Salt
  • 250 g Flour I use wheat flour 1050, alternatively any other flour (for gluten-free add ½ tsp locust bean gum).


  • 500 g Spinach frozen or 1 kg fresh spinach *see notes below
  • 230 g vegan feta
  • 1 Piece red onion peeled and finely diced
  • 1 tbspn Garlic granules or 2 fresh garlic cloves, peeled and finely chopped
  • ½ tbspn Salt
  • ¼ tbspn Nutmeg
  • Pepper to taste


  • Sesame seeds to taste
  • Fresh parsley


  • Defrost SPINAT (if frozen).
    500 g Spinach
  • FOR THE DOUGH put lukewarm water and yeast in a bowl and stir with a whisk or your hands until the yeast has dissolved. Gradually add olive oil and flour and knead with your hands until smooth. Cover and let rise a warm (not hot!) Place without drafts for an hour.
    170 ml lukewarm water, 2 g fresh yeast, 1 tbspn Olive oil, 250 g Flour
  • NOTE: Yeast bacteria do not like it too hot or too cold. Always choose a medium, warm temperature.
  • While the yeast dough is rising, prepare the filling. To do this, place thawed spinach, onion, salt, pepper, garlic granules and nutmeg in a large bowl and stir until everything is well combined. Set aside.
    1 tbspn Salt, 500 g Spinach, 1 Piece red onion, Pepper to taste, ¼ tbspn Nutmeg
  • After the rising time, transfer the dough to a floured work surface and knead well again with your hands. The dough should have a smooth, firm consistency. Divide into four equal portions. Place on a surface and roll out with a pastry roller four oblong pastry bases (about 20x10cm). If necessary, a little extra flour is needed here.
  • Now preheat oven to 220 degrees convection or pizza level.
  • Place filling in center of pastry shells, leaving edges generously free. Sprinkle with a generous amount of vegan feta.

More Information


If using fresh spinach, blanch in a pan beforehand along with onion, garlic and the spices. This is important so that the spinach collapses and can be used as a filling.
